Subject: Sure not one of the best
Read somewhere that Christopher Lee was tricked into this one. He was announced the film would be full of famous co-stars. He ended up being the only real big name of the all show. Sue Lyon and Dean Jagger didn't help much either.
The other Scifi stuff Lee was not much proud of was "Starship Invasion" made in Canada approximatively the same year. Try not take those 2 titles too seriously, or else you are bound to a big desappointement.

I've never been able to get all the way through this film, no matter how hard I try. And I'm the guy who can watch the Larry Buchanan movies over and over and enjoy them to pieces. Go figure.

Subject: Missed that one
The two bedroom scenes didn't add a thing, really stupid. Acting really poor except for Christopher Lee who is 87 now and still acting!! Too dark, maby the original film was better.

Boy, was this a flash from the past! Forget the plodding, stupid story; enjoy the cultural references, and the hair, clothing and car styles.

I downloaded the "DivX" file, which is actually an AVI. Video and audio quality are fine.

Subject: I was surprised...
I saw this film about a year ago... I wasn't expecting much but was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The casting is interesting. The special effects are passable. The ending was the biggest surprise... it left me wanting more.

Maybe I'm too easily pleased. I give it a 4 because even when he's slumming it, Christopher Lee is worth watching.
